The RMN-Grand Palais has invited the Papier Tigre stationery brand to design a line of items inspired by ancient Egypt for the Louvre Museum.
After the Musée de l’Orangerie, the Louvre museum is now also entitled to a unique and exclusive line of stationery, freely inspired by certain iconic works from the museum’s emblematic collections of Egyptian antiquities.
Colorful, poetic and arty are three keywords that define this new 100% made in France line, manufactured in the Papier Tigre workshop in Paris.
Made of recycled paper and cardboard, the line includes 6 A5 notebooks, 4 A6 notebooks, 1 A5 drawing book, 1 set of 20 folding letter-envelopes, 1 notepad, a list pad, but also a tote bag, a pencil case, a box of watercolor pencils, a folder with elastic band and a mini puzzle that will complete the range in December.
For this collab, Papier Tigre drew its inspiration from the Louvre museum’s Egyptian Antiquities department and extracted details of the deities and key symbols of Egyptian civilization (the Osiris-Isis-Horus triad, the Udjat eye, Anubis, Thoth, Bastet), which it then freely reinterpreted in a very arty way, with vibrant colors, arousing new emotions in front of these masterpieces of Egyptian civilization.
